COMMENTS FROM PARENTS
"Gone is the silent little boy who couldn’t speak, who was so angry and frustrated all the time. I now have a delightful, almost four year old boy, who never stops talking, who is happy and confident, who I can have conversations with, who tells me how he feels, who no longer gets so frustrated that he hurts himself."
"I cannot tell you how much it has meant to me and the whole family to have the fantastic support offered at the Opportunity Centre. It has been a nightmare year and brought more sorrow and grief than I could ever imagined, but it has been eased by the welcome, support and help offered by your Centre."
"Words cannot express the gratitude that I feel for the fantastic work that you have all done. My daughter is a different child to the one that walked through your doors that first time; the progress she has made is amazing. I cannot thank you all enough for the support and the difference you have made to our lives".
"Where do I start? Attending the group has helped me to come to terms with my son's condition. Where else would I meet parents in a similar position to my own? Where else would I meet all the therapists under one roof? Where elsoe would I be able to be myself with regard to my son's problems? There is always someone to talk to, moan at, cry to, shout and scream with and have a good laugh with".
"It has been three and a half years since I first walked into the Opportunity Centre. I was so scared, but everyone was 'fab' and it has been a safe haven of help and support ever since".
